We are so touched to share that Pure Art’s origin story has been featured in Bella Grace, the always artistic “magazine that thinks it’s a book.”
The article entitled “The Lightkeeper” traces the opening of the first boutique on Hudson’s Main street and explores the driving force behind its mission. It also touches on the store’s Lightkeeper bracelet, launched as a token of light in what was, for the store’s owners, a moment of darkness. In a letter format from son to mother, the article opens by asking whether art can really heal the world, a statement that Pure Art’s founders had impressed upon their five young children.
Creatively facing the hurdles that have befallen them, a community of artisans in Pakistan is an inspiring example of this optimism. When a flood devastated the livelihoods of an estimated 20.4 million people in Pakistan in 2010, a company named Poetic Threads of Pakistan (PTOP) emerged with a vision to overcome adversity through art.
